EAGLE, Neb. (July 11) – Roger Sluka led start to finish in winning a fast-paced Karl Kustoms North­ern SportMod main event Saturday at Eagle Raceway. 

Sluka brought the 5S back to the flag stand first with Rich Flock, James Hines and Bobby Draper rounding out the top four. Lap three saw Braydon Latture race into second with Mike Scheinost taking third and Draper holding onto fourth. 

Derek Hall passed Draper on lap nine and Scheinost got past Latture for second two laps later, but Latture got the spot back after another two circuits with Shawn Harker jumping up to third. 

Harker got past Latture after two more rounds as Arie Schouten moved into fourth. Harker dropped out with just three to go making the final top four Sluka, Schouten, Latture and Brian Baker.

Clint Homan topped the IMCA Modified feature and Jeff Ware continued his IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock winning streak.

Another great night of racing at Eagle Raceway Saturday night as Demon Decals and Budweiser presented Bad Fast Fever. A great crowd, plenty of cars in the pits and a beautiful summer night meant that it was going to be a fantastic show that finished in just over 3 hours. 

Devin Bruce led from lap three to the checkers in the Mach-1 Sport Compact main event and Joey Danley led Trevor Grossenbacher and Mike Boston across the stripe in the IMCA Rac­eSaver Sprint Car feature.
